    Yes, it's call a manufacturer's web site. They have all the info on their products.

    Don't trust any source except the manufacturer.

    I see. Would you mind if I'll ask you their website?

    Hi,

    I agree with SLK001.

    What exact device are you talking about? You need to know which type from which manufacturer...

    You mean, from the components manufacturer website? For example is intersil's microcontroller. Part number is D2-74083-LR.

    Re: Downloading sites for Components footprint

    There are many ways to create footprints nowadays.Some companies ( Linear, Microchip, Texas ect.) use UltraLibrarian and they distribute their footprints being as bxl file and you can convert this file into any format such as Allegro,Mentor Graphics, Eagle etc. It's really nice method.It creates schematic view and footprint simultaneously.PartsQuest also supplies foorprints and schematic views onlinefor mainframe PCB CAD tools.

    Yes, this should be the way to go. There are other ways, too.

    But in this case, the footprint information is not in the datasheet (but Intersil give footprint informations in other datasheets), and additionally there is no reference to a standard package (like JEDEC..).
    I´d say this is a task for the Intersil support.

    I guess what you're looking for.Simple registration is necessary.

    Re: Downloading sites for Components footprint

    Or make your own component footprints based on the component dimensions from the data sheet using the PCB library expert (a version available for free) at pcblibraries dot com.
    If you use the manufacturers footprints for everything you may find that you end up with a dozen different extremely similar footprints which could all be covered by the same footprint.
    Please do not PM me questions that are better asked in the PCB forum :)

    Ultralibrarian has a lot of PCB components of devices for many CADs.

    Re: Downloading sites for Components footprint

    Make sure that downloaded footprints comply with a standard. Either your own standard or IPC-7351.

    Your library is the key in your design proces.

    Re: Downloading sites for Components footprint

    IPC-7351 especially if you have limited experience, most PCB designers have limited experience these days, many don't ever get hands on experience actually assembling the boards they design.
